As healthcare costs increase, hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) are receiving increasing attention. In the past few years (from 2007 to 2014), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) have promoted the implementation of hand hygiene practices. Despite these efforts, hand hygiene is generally substandard; in other words, we need to take more steps to reduce and prevent infections. Part of the answer is to apply antimicrobial protection technology to healthcare products and surfaces.
How does Microban work to improve infection control measures?
We need systematic antimicrobial technology solutions to combat HAIs and cannot rely on simple hand hygiene practices. To provide a comprehensive antimicrobial solution for healthcare, we need to consider the patient environment. A comprehensive solution will continue to improve hand hygiene, increase monitoring of environmental surfaces, introduce new disinfection technologies, and use built-in antibacterial agents to create a cleaner and safer healthcare environments.
